    wondering what color choices you would choose for my truck and what you think would look good. I have Method desert truck bead lock wheels that will be painted black but im trying to figure out if I should paint the ring black as well or was thinking maybe the same light blue as my king coils. Any suggestions would be appreciated im not sure if its going to be too much blue!

    PICS of the wheels and truck.

    haha im not blind, I would definitely go with King Blue but i'm afraid it might be too much blue. If i had any other color truck I wouldnt have asked it would be easy!

    I'd say just keep the ring the silver it is cause it looks pretty good. If you paint them black to then it will be hard to see the rings. Light blue would be a little bit to much IMO.

    I vote black. I don't think King blue would match the color of your truck very well.

    but king blue would match his coils and the letter on the LCA.

    I wonder if i can email King to get a paint code. or if its a super secret code that we'll tell you but then we'd have to kill you after type. Quick google search yielded nothing.

    Still not 100% sure but I want to see how expensive it is. I emailed the company who makes it to get a quote, if its not too bad what the hell why not. If i dont like it ill get it changed.
